The Captains is a feature length documentary film written and directed by William Shatner. The film follows Shatner as he interviews the other actors whom have portrayed Starship captains within the illustrious science-fiction franchise.
If you are a Star Trek fan then I think you will find this documentary interesting. This is mainly 75 Shatner + Nimoy discussing various aspects of the original series and their private lives how they related to the show.
To Boldly Go Where No Talk Show Has Ever Gone Before
My only complaint about Shatner's Raw Nerve is that it only lasts for a half hour. With commercial breaks built in -- it often feels like you are losing precious time that you want to spend watching Bill and his guests in the innovative "love seat." I have enjoyed every single episode that I have seen without exception, but what he pulled out of Gene Simmons was not only a touching interview, but something that taught me a lot about success. Not a "how to make it" per se, but what I heard from the man transcended anything in any other interview given by the man as advice I will walk away with and follow.
This is a crown jewel in William Shatner's impressive portfolio and I hope it continues.
